    For those looking for a new set of OEM wheels...

    You may want to contact Detroit Tire & Wheel. I found an Ebay ad for them on a hot rod classified site, and promptly called them. The price was $685 for all 4 (2 - 18" and 2 - 19"). These are all new, in box, Hypersilver wheels. He bought about 10 sets of these as GM overstocks. I think he had 9 sets left when I bought mine. I couldn't pass it up for the price, but figured I wouldn't say anything until I physically had mine...

    19" #1;


    19" #1 again;


    19" #2;


    18" #1;


    18" #2;

    Re: For those looking for a new set of OEM wheels...

    Question.. for spare tire purposes in case of a flat on a long trip.. would the 18's be ok temporarily on the back if lets say a back tire blew out? Would the 19's be ok in the front? I've recently been thinking of buying another rim for spare purposes. Thanks.

    18's would fit all around in such a case. 19's won't fit up front. They would phyisically bolt up, but you wouldn't be able to turn.

    Hey just called them up. They say $885 plus shipping. Was the $685 a typo? I said $685 and he said no way that's below our cost.

    If you can confirm the cost I may order; previous owner's gf gave my wheels some hideous rash.

    The front and rears are 2 different rolling diameters aren't they? I don't think you can switch between the two, will cause traction control madness.

    Re: For those looking for a new set of OEM wheels...

    I paid $685 plus the shipping. Joe Volpe is who I did business with. The issue may be that they no longer have any of the sets that they were pricing at $685. I don't know... Either way $885 is still a steal. GM wants just under $600 for ONE rear wheel!

    Here is my email with him from when he sent me the CC authrorization form;

    Ignore the part where it asks for invoice #, you can fax back to 248.543.3589 attn. JOE



    Or you can email them back to me



    $685 for CTS STS V wheels plus $135 Shipping

    We also had an text exchange where I was grilling him on the price and what was wrong with them to be priced so low and confirmed with him that they were the staggered size wheels.

    ----------

    Ok, went out to where I found them and this is the ad I had that was $685. It is now $885.

    http://www.dragtimes.com/parts/CADIL...048914875.html

    Again, I think they ran out of the $685 priced units, or have realized since selling me my set, that they could ask more. I don't know. Either way, $885 is still a steal. As I said, GM wants about $600 for the rears, and around $500 for the fronts (if I recall... I'm also rounding, so not an exact price). That would be $1,000 for two fronts and $1,200 for two rears, or $2,200 in total. So $885 is ~60% off GM's price. Neither price includes the cost of new TPMS sensors and center caps. GM wants nearly $40 each for center caps... No way! I'll swap. I did purchase TPMS sensors cheaper from Parts Geek.

    Yes, you can find a few on Ebay. I did and almost pulled the trigger on a few out there. Problem is, they're typically used and/or refinished wheels. Those being chromed or PVD chromed, are more obviously. These again, are NEW GM wheels, in their boxes. Never used, still in the wrapping...

    You can't use the TPM units out of the old wheels, can you? I would think it would cause sealing problems and leak.

    Should be able to barring no physical damage to it. The sensor just mounts to the valve stem.

    I got new ones because I plan on using both sets, so I didn't want to tear down my current wheels to get parts I needed for the new ones.
